Today in Literature   Today in Literature began in 2001 — the naïve idea of an English teacher on leave from the classroom. It was a weekly radio series in Canada before moving to the internet, on Salon.com and several other sites. It is now an independent web-site and subscription service, with over 25,000 visitors a day and subscribers in virtually every country in the world. It is pleasing to think that TinL helps to keep the world of books alive for so many — especially those two subscribers on Bouvet Island in the Antarctic, whoever you may be. 

60 Second Recap  60second Recap® wants to make the great works of literature accessible, relevant, and, frankly, irresistible to today’s teens. Through 60second Recap® video albums, we seek to help teens engage with the best books out there ... not just to help them get better grades, but to help them build better lives.

Literature.org On this site you will find the full and unabridged texts of classic works of English literature. Fiction from authors like Lewis Carroll, the Bronte sisters (Anne,Charlotte and Emily), Jack LondonMark TwainCharles Dickens and many others, and classic scientific works from Charles Darwin and Rene Descartes.

 Literary Terms and Definitions   This webpage contains an alphabetical glossary of literary terms and their definitions. It focuses particularly on the material I most frequently teach (classical and medieval literature, the history of the English language, and science fiction narratives). Because the list is fairly lengthy, I have subdivided it into several pages. Hunt for the term you want alphabetically within each letter's webpage. You can supplement this knowledge by looking in the glossary in the back of your literature books, in dictionaries, and online more generally. Do note that entries marked with a tiny construction barrier ()or the abbreviation TBA ("to be announced") are still in the process of being written or revised, so these entries will change as I polish them.

  5. Jeremy Leven. Satan: His Psychotherapy and Cure by the Unfortunate Dr. Dr. Kassler, J.S.P.S. Satan is feeling pretty down about the horrible reputation he's been stuck with, and he goes to a shrink and tries to justify himself. You see, God really is in charge--not just of the record-keeping, though it stands to reason that the guy who writes the historydetermines what we think about the players in it. But God needed Satan to do evil things, in order to demonstrate His own power and goodness, in order to teach moral lessons about temptation and resistance and obedience. Dr. Kassler does his best to make Satan well-adjusted, but ends with the sinking suspicion that he has converted the only sane person he has ever known to the common irrationality we accept as reason.

  22. Literature Review Defined   What is it and why are students required to do one? The literature is exactly what one would expect from its title � it is a review of a collection of previously published literature on a specific topic or topics. The literature review is often required of students as they undertake research into a particular topic in order to determine whether or not their specific research topic has already been undertaken. Generally speaking, the literature review summarizes and condenses an extensive amount of material. In addition, the review allows the student to organize a vast amount of information into a pattern that is meaningful to his or her research purposes, and will allow the student to draw his or her own conclusions about the nature of that information.
